He went to prison, he's infamous and from most counts, he's near broke. I'm surprised the casinos allow a convicted felon to operate within their properties.


Getting into the HOF isn't going to make a difference in his or anyone else's life. Just more Barry Horowitz "pat ourselves on the back" nonsense...like the Oscars.

Try the zipline at Fremont Street or the one I read about at Rio.

Speaking of ziplines, this is what Sin City needs: a "rollercoaster" zipline.

He went to prison



1990

Fallen baseball hero Pete Rose was sentenced today to five months in prison and fined $50,000 for cheating on his taxes.

"I have no excuses because it's all my fault," the former manager of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team said. "I lost my dignity, I lost my self respect . . . and I almost lost a lot of dear friends."

Rose was sentenced for failing to report more than $354,000 in income from baseball memorabilia sales, autograph appearances and the gambling for which he was banned for life from professional baseball.

U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel also ordered Rose to spend three months in a halfway house after the prison term and perform 1,000 hours of community service with inner-city youths. He could have sentenced Rose to six years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

IF everyone who gambled in Vegas and forgot to put any winnings on their Tax Return was sent to jail, we'd need to build a lot more jails, eh ?
I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes; When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale; It was still September When your daddy was quite surprised; To find you with the working girls in the county jail; I was smoking with the boys upstairs when I Heard about the whole affair;I said oh no William and Mary won't do
